Gov. Christie visits Little Egg Harbor

LITTLE EGG HARBOR TWP. -

Governor Chris Christie made a stop in Little Egg Harbor Township, to mark the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.

While speaking at the Little Egg Harbor Township Community Center, the Governor spent time reflecting on the state's recovery from the storm, as well as discussing the next steps in the rebuilding process. While some residents were happy to see the Governor, others say his visit is too little too late, saying he didn't get enough attention to all of the communities affected.

The Governor addressed those critics Tuesday night.

"It's not that you're not happy for the 200,000 families that got their power back, but until it happened for you, until the lights went on for you, you had no chance of being back to normal," said Christie.

The Governor also said that Tuesday is not a celebration, or an anniversary, but rather a commemoration of everything the state has gone through since the storm.
